Our 8 Year Wedding Anniversary

Our wedding day 8 years ago May 11, 2002.
How would I know that around 11 years ago someone by the name of David would walk into my life? And how would I know that 7 months into our relationship he would ask me to marry him? And that 2 1/2 years later we would then get married? So, here we are 8 years of marriage later. Where has the time gone? I can't believe that that much time has already passed us by! I am so glad that we have shared it together. We have come so far in 8 years. We went from leaving from our reception and were on our way to the first stop on our honeymoon. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive. It was very weird and awkward and a very quiet car ride. We had been so caught up in the wedding and everything, but then here we were, finally married, and nothing to say to each other. I think we were nervous and scared and didn't really know what to expect! I finally said "Uh, I really don't know what to say to you right now." and David said "Yeah, I know, me either." to now not being able to do much without the other. He knows what I'm thinking and feeling without me saying a word. Our lives have grown and changed in so many ways since we've been together. Always for the better. Sometimes we have learned the hard way, and it's made us better people for it. Building our home was a difficult road, but we made it, and that's what matters. I see now that our lives are hopefully about to change again for the better. (Praying!) David has taught and shown me so much I honestly do not know where I would be without him. I am so glad God saw fit for him to walk into my life when he did!! David, I don't know what else to say other than there is NO ONE else who would put up with me and love me unconditionally other than you. There is NO ONE I would rather spend the rest of my life and share my future with, than you. Our lives continue to change and I'm glad your by my side!! Happy 8 year Anniversary!!! (Tomorrow, May 11) I love you!!!

Went today and got all the flowers I need for the Summer. I was able to get alot of them while they are still little so they haven't reached their peak yet. Mom S. made a good point, with next weekend being Mother's Day weekend and how warm it's been, I'm afraid they will get picked over. So, even though it's a bit early to plant because of the frosts we still get, I will just keep them under the porch for awhile yet.
Last week David had taken off work on Friday and started planting the trees/shrubs. It's hard work! We won't be getting mulch until we get it all planted. We are headed to another auction for trees and shrubs this coming Friday night!! We are gonna get it done. Little, by little.
This will be a very busy week for us! I've been working CRAZY overtime!! And Monday I have an appt. with a OBGYN. It is my first time seeing him, and hopefully we will get on track to having a child. Tuesday morning my brother and his girlfriend are scheduled to have a C-section at 7:30am, so my niece Brooke will be here!! Thursday we are going to go preview the auction things, then Friday Auction! So between work, Dr's appt, Brooke's arrival, Auction pre-view, auction and planting we are very busy!!

Someone has alot of work to do!!!
